Award winning regeneration company Urban Splash has completed construction of the first residential phase of 72 modular Town Houses at Irwell Riverside in Salford, as well as announcing a new partnership with Manchester-based Property Alliance Group to deliver the final apartment phase.
The partnership will build 156 homes across three residential blocks at the site, which stands on Springfield Lane overlooking Trinity Way in Manchester. In synergy with the first phase of the site, the blocks will be built using modern methods of construction – the phase will be named Uptown.
Speaking of the news, Urban Splash director Nathan Cornish said: “We’re really pleased to have completed all of the first phase at Irwell Riverside, with all of the homes sold off plan and bespoke designed for purchasers. We have been thrilled with the success of this scheme.
“Our partnership with Alliance will help create more, beautifully designed apartments at Irwell Riverside; the planned use of modular is the perfect complement to the first phase and an extension of our commitment to offsite technology.”
Uptown has been designed by architects shedkm, the same award-winning designers who created the first phase modular Town Houses. David Savage from Alliance added: “Ideally located a stone’s throw away from Manchester’s Victoria train station, this exciting new development has been designed to complement the first phase and help build a thriving community by the banks of the River Irwell.
“Architecturally, Uptown combines contemporary and industrial styles with a bold geometric design. The buildings rise to different heights and feature ascending private and communal rooftop garden terraces providing extensive outdoor space for residents. Adding to the onsite amenities, we are also planning a gym within the scheme and riverside bike stores.”
The first phase of Town Houses at Irwell Riverside were created by Urban Splash in the company’s House factory in the East Midlands, a facility it vertically integrated into its business earlier this year. The latest Houses launched by the developer include at Port Loop in Birmingham, a site it is delivering with joint venture partner Places for People, as well as plans to bring more Town Houses to New Islington – fronting the Ashton Canal interested customers can register now via the Urban Splash website.
Irwell Riverside was formerly home to the Greengate cotton mills and Springfield Iron Works; it is adjacent to the Paradise Works artists studios in Urban Splash’s Irwell House.
The company is now turning its attentions to more Houses and apartments at New Islington and Avro in Manchester – with over 2000 pipeline homes across the UK – as well as creating new workspaces such as Beehive and Boat Shed.
Alliance is bringing forward several high-profile residential schemes in Manchester, including Axis Tower, Oxygen, and Manhattan which combined will bring more than 500 high-quality apartments to the city centre.
